Seahawks avoid further injuries in win against Dolphins

NFL: Seattle Seahawks at Miami Dolphins Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

Less than a quarter of the way through the regular season, the Seattle Seahawks were looking at a brutally beat up roster. Nearly half the roster appeared on the injury report to start the week, ahead of the team’s trip to Miami to take on the Dolphins. Marquise Blair, Bruce Irvin, Rasheem Green, and Phillip Dorsett, among others, were already on injured reserve. Jordyn Brooks and Jamal Adams were declared out before the final injury report on Friday.

The Seahawks, headed across the country, could not afford to lose anymore players to injury in a game they entered without a number of starters. Thankfully, they appeared to do just that in their win against the Dolphins.

Speaking to reporters after Seattle’s victory over Miami, Pete Carroll said the team got out of the game with no new injuries to report.

Though the Seahawks were able to get out of Week 4 healthy, it wasn’t without a scare. In the first half, Chris Carson took a major hit and stayed down for a while. He would not return in the first half, but did return in the second half. Initially feared to be a head injury, it was later reported Carson simply got the wind knocked out of him.

Now 4-0, Seattle can head home and hope to get a few starters back into the lineup before they face the Vikings on Sunday Night Football in Week 5.
